  • Question

  • Hi,

    in our one of Exchange databases , Transaction logs getting increased rapidly. I’m not sure which user sending such emails. I checked in Hub transport server for any queues , but no such things.

    I need find the culprit in that database. i thought we can use Exmon tool , but not sure how to analyses the report using Exmon.

  • When using exmon you're really looking at activity based, do you see one user consuming most of the resources? Fast growing log files can be anything, it can caused by scripts, bugs with mail clients, third party software such as archiving, loops etc.

    The guidance below is the best and more comprehensive out there.
